Marine Scalefish Fishery

The Hon. N.J. CENTOFANTI (Leader of the Opposition) (14:32): Supplementary: why wasn’t the West Coast fishery involved in the marine scalefish fishery reform?

The Hon. C.M. SCRIVEN (Minister for Primary Industries and Regional Development, Minister for Forest Industries) (14:32): Given that that reform and that decision was made under the government of Steven Marshall, so the former Liberal government, I would hope that those opposite should be able to ascertain that information. However, I am happy to see whether there were any public comments made at the time by the former government. The honourable Leader of the Opposition is after all a member of that same party, but to obviously assist her, given that they clearly don't communicate within their own party, I am happy to take that on notice and bring back some response.
